Questions of the Day

Am I the only one who wonders how many of the same politicians that applaud the use of "red light cameras" to enforce traffic laws can decry the recently passed Arizona legislation to enforce immigration law? 


Aren't both about both safety and holding those accountable who break the law?

Tim,
I gotta tell ya from my experience of living in Arizona half of each year: Those politicians are a strange breed indeed. The immigration law(s), Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and all those hot button issues are always, always in the news media out there.

Roland,

I have to believe that they are, and there do seem to be some characters.

I'm not sure what Immigration policy should be in this country, but I get concerned when which laws get enforced becomes political and when public safety (which I understand is a real concern in AZ) and selective enforcement appear to have a political agenda.
